Our girl Kandi does it again! You all know her new show Real
Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's wedding, well according to the Nielsen
rating it beat out ever other Real Housewives spin-off in total
viewers. Surprisingly Kandi's wedding special brought in more viewers
than the notorious NeNe Leakes wedding special! NeNe had 1.6 million
while Kandi had a whopping 2.4 million! I guess with all the real
drama around Mama Joyce and her husband Todd and his family, there is
no wonder the viewers are there. You go Kandi!
Well praise God that the mess is over! So Mase and his wife, well
ex-wife now, Twyla have finally gotten a divorce! TMZ broke the story
with reports that the couple are officially divorced. With all the
drama that had been all around their marriage in the past year it is a
good thing that the two of them can move on and put that behind them.
The two initially applied for full physical custody of their two kids,
but now Mase is on $6,000 spousal and child-support along wit
"reasonable visitation" rights. Y'all remember when I gave y'all the
tea this past week about Mase allegedly dating Malaysia Pargo from
Basketball Wives LA, well maybe after her divorce the two of them can
hook up! Maybe that will be the tea soon!
The famous Maxwell is thinking about coming out with another album!
Yesss honey! The R&B legend said, according to Poll Star, that he is
reevaluating himself because of a lot of personal things that have
happened to him in his life. Maxwell has said that since his return to
music in 2009 with the Grammy-winning BLACKsummer's night they he was
inspired and ready to release a second album to his trilogy. Now I
know y'all are wondering what it is going to be titled and as soon as
we know, we will let you know. "This year is really about the people,
it's really about focusing on putting out the music, and taking myself
to another level in life," said Maxwell in a recent interview done
with The Associated Press. I am really anxious to hear what Maxwell
has in store!
The Bad Boy of R&B is about to spice it up again, just this time in
the kitchen! Bobby Brown is apparently coming out with his own line of
BBQ sauces and spices come this Fall. According to Philly.com The New
Edition stat revealed that he has always known how to cook and has had
a passion for it since he was a child. "I learned to cook a long time
ago. When I was younger and on punishment, that was my punishment..."
The Bobby Brown Foods product line will be a creation of Brown's
personal recipes which will include flavors such as Bobby's Original
BBQ Sauce; Boston Blend Seasoning; and Sweet and Spice Sauce. I cannot
say that I am excited, but I will say I am not opposed to trying it.
Can't hurt, right?
Now this is a tragedy! Y'all remember the song "Teach Me How To
Dougie?" Well a member of the group that made the song, Cali Swag
District, died at only 25 years old. His name was JayAre and he
suffered from sickle cell anemia. JayAre was admitted into the
hospital on June 5, according to MTV News, and went into cardiac
arrest and died. That is extremely sad. Even more shocking this is the
first member of the group to die at such an early age. Y'all remember
back in 2011 M-Bone was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting. Our
thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the Cali Swag

Man oh man. Mr. Montana, I've perused (read through with thoroughness and care) your #instagram profile description, pictures & posts... but despite my determined effort, I STILL don't have a CLUE to one very simple question... "Who ARE you?".. I mean other than reading that you've dated a Kardashian, and you seem to enjoy taking extraneous pictures with LEGITIMATE celebrities, I'm baffled (perplexed, confused) as to WHO you are & WHAT you actually DO? How do you contribute to society? What do you do to HELP those in need? What philanthropic works have you done? Are you on the board of any charitable organizations? Do you posses your own charitable organization? Do you own your name? How many of your followers are actually REAL followers and not computer generated? Oh.. And one other thing, if you are gonna post or repost things about other people (such as myself). FYI: Maybe you should put more effort into aligning yourself with people who can ASSIST you with building your brand for longevity, only THEN will you be prepared to (as your boy Martin would so clearly put it) "Stomp with the big dogs". But either way, I'm pleased to know you are a true fan of the Martin show despite what criticisms you have. Your continued support is proof that for over 30 years, I have CONTRIBUTED something of VALUE on television to many people (including yourself) and many generations and hopefully more to come. Hit me up and maybe I can hook you into individuals who have "Serious Inquiries" regarding hiring you. I just need to know what exactly it is that you are SELLING, because unfortunately, I STILL don't know. Keep your head up & GOD Bless! TICHINA ... Oh! One more thing, if you know of anyone who has an auto immune disease such as #Lupus, go check out my 501c3 organization at www.wewinfoundation.org - Unfortunately thousands of women (and men) battle with this constant life threatening #autoimmune #disease everyday. It would be AMAZING if you made a donation instead of losing 40k in one on one basketball bets with your cohorts. Your positive & monetary support would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time.
We all really need to pray for Tracy Morgan. The comedian was in a really bad car accident this past weekend that left him and a few others in critical condition but also some dead. According to CNN as of yesterday Tracy was still in critical condition but showing signs of improvement. Now for all of you who don't know Tracy Morgan's limo was hit ny a tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike around 1AM on Saturday. According to the reports made by Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police, Tracy suffered several injuries which included broken ribs, nose, leg, and femur.

T.I.’s mom is fed up with the drama between her son and daughter-in-law. While T.I. spent time with his daughter, Deyjah, at the Tony awards, Tiny was seen living it up at the Glam Bar in Buckhead with friends Tamar Braxton, Toya Wright, and Miss Mykie. After Tiny posted photos of her at the bar, T.I.’s mom took it upon herself to comment under the picture asking Tiny if she could sit down and have a serious talk with her son. It’s already known that there was trouble in paradise for the couple, but Ms. Harris confirms that the couple hasn’t been in contact with each other either. Hopefully both Tiny and T.I. take her advice.

Although Casper Smart is able to leave with some gifts since break up with Jennifer Lopez, he is not getting any cash and is officially on his own. Smart will no longer get the perks of flying on private jet or relaxing in the Hamptons, unless it’s on his own dime. According to TMZ, sources say that Casper is onlt able to keep his 2 motorcyles, a jeep and a Dodge Ram Truck. At least he leaves the break up with something.
Tichina Arnold makes it clear that everything isn’t a joking matter. The former Martin actress went off on rapper French Montana after he posted a photo of her on Instagram last month. The photo consisted of an unflattering picture of Arnold with a caption on top that the actress did not appreciate at all. After Arnold finally saw the post, she went on a well-worded rebuttal asking the rapper who he is and what exactly does he do. She also took the time out ask Montana to reach out and donate to her charity instead of wasting it on bets. But the “Pop That” rapper made sure to defend himself by reposting the picture and telling the actress he wasn’t the only one that it and to not use him to plug her charity. He ended the response with a nice “Stay blessed”. I guess Montana won’t be posing any Martin related photos on Instagram anytime soon.

You would think after the success of the first Best Man and The Best Man Holiday that Hollywood would be jumping to do a Best Man 3. Well not really. According to The Jasmine Brand leading actor Taye Diggs says that Hollywood hold African-American movies to a separate and unfair standard. Now what's up with that? Taye Diggs also said that depending on the success of the African-American cast members is the deciding factor on whether Hollywood will proceed with black-oriented films. Shame on Hollywood!
We all knew it was coming, no shock here. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J was arrested for not paying child-support!

The price was raised to $8,500 a month but the child nor the mother has seen that money since 2001. Now he owes the great amount of $1,107,412. Damn Stevie! The cops picked him up in Georgia but he will face criminal charges in NYC. Come on Stevie, you take care of that Puerto Rican stripper princess, why not take care of your kids? Do better!
Now this is not another Bobbi Kristina rant, this is the real deal. Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. will play his father in the Universal's biopic "Straight Outta Compton." According to The Root the cast has not been confirmed yet, but with Ice Cube producing the film alongside Dr. Dre and Eazy-E's widow, O'Shea has a sealed position as his father. The NWA veteran has been wanting his son to play that role since earlier this year. In an interview with The Guardian Ice Cube said, "I've been trying to get that pushed along. Just wanna make sure that he's the best man for the job." You go O'Shea!

The newlywed singer posted a picture on her Instagram page with a large pair of Jordan's and a baby size pair with the caption, "I'll be stunin like my daddy." Now Kelly has been in the presence of pregnancy rumors for a little minute, I wonder did she put them to rest. With the couple's super private wedding last month I don't think Instagram is a way that we will find out about their first baby. We will know soon though. Go Kelly!
Has Ri-Ri snatched another man? Ciara gives the haters a slap-back to the rumors to her and fiance Future breaking up.

I love it honey! You do it!
Every music lover has been hoping and praying for an Outkast reunion and the Hip-Hop group finally reunited this year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, but there are rumors that Big Boi and Andre 3000 actually can’t stand each other. In 2012, rumors of the two feuding came about when Big Boi said that Andre 3000 was too busy to make it on his album. Big Boi later on denied the rumors and said there is still a possibility for an Outkast album, but right now it looks like that’s not happening anytime soon. Sources say that the two may perform together but when the music stops they go their separate ways. Hopefully the two can give us one more album for old times’ sake.
It looks like a Jimi Hendrix biopic is coming our way soon and Anthony Mackie will be playing the rock music icon.

Our prayers are still with everyone involved in the tragic accident.

The rapper posted the announcement on his Instagram with the caption “I’m out of control now, watch my next move”.
It looks like Casper Smart is seeking retaliation. Jennifer Lopez’s former boyfriend is considering legal action against the transgender model who is accusing them of having an affair. Xristina Marie gave The Sun UK an exclusive interview claiming that her and Smart after meeting at a club in Miami and choreographer gave an exclusive statement to Access Hollywood, saying that there is no truth to Xristina’s interview that he is weighing his options on taking action against her or The Sun. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.
Mariah Carey’s new album 'Me…I Am Mariah: The Elusive Chanteuse' is not doing so well on the charts, and the lambs are blaming it all on Jermaine Dupri.

The singer’s fans are livid and they have been attacking the Atlanta producer, but Dupri took to his twitter to post a letter not only to defend himself but to silence the angry lambs. In the letter Dupri addresses how he wants to go down as one of the greatest producers of all time and being mentioned with the likes of Clive Davis and Berry Gordy. He concludes the letter by saying that he doesn’t want them to believe that he doesn’t care about promotion for Mariah’s album and that their questions will be answered soon.

She referred that Blue's locks reminded her of rap legend Ol' Dirty Bastard, by saying, "She's giving me OBD." That is a shame!! Talking about a child in that manner. Keke Wyatt had something to say as well stating that, "I got natural, but you still got to grease natural and comb natural and wash and condition..."Of course you know the BeyHive clapped back quick tweeting all kinds of stuff against the haters.

Although it has gained over 1,500 it has been largely criticized as being inappropriate. That's a crying shame!
